I do not typically write reviews but I have to say I could not be more pleased with the exceptional service I received from the Foundation Recovery Team in Lees Summit. Shayne, Dakota, Landon and Tyler were outstanding! They thoughtfully guided us through every step of the process and ensured we understood what was going to happen to ease our nerves. It is scary having your entire house lifted, and they were so knowledgable and transparent that I felt confident leaving my house while the work was being done. They were on-time, considerate and trustworthy. Our house is back to level, the big gaps between our foundation and doors are closed, and our floor is now level. I am thrilled with the work they did and will sleep well at night knowing our homes foundation is fixed!

Miguel and Abby were very professional, they did a great job, in not only leveling out my extremely old, multiple cracked up, totally uneven driveway (2 to 3 inches unlevel in parts), but also the sealing of it, especially between my driveway and garage and the driveway and porch … I just love it! Then, the levelingand sealing of my back porch was just as outstanding!

Brandon and his team did a great job with our foundation repair. He kept me informed about what was happening and was open to answering my questions. When he needed to change something from the plan he let me know and explained in details. I would have him come back if I ever needed anyone again.For the garage floor leveling Jeremiah, Jake and KD were equally great. Friendly, efficient and kept me informed as to what was happening. I would have them return if needed – but here's to hoping my problems are resolved and nothing new comes up.

Foundation Recovery Systems quickly resolved my issue with water ingress to my garage by professionally installing a system to redirect the water to keep it from entering my garage. Josh Eaton, Mason Tinney, and Lueck Wright performed the work quickly and politely, and expertly addressed all my concerns. They did a great job cleaning up after the work was concluded, and walked me through what was done.

We are an animal rescue and have been in our building for 6.5 yrs. We knew we needed concrete repair and we reached out to Foundation Recovery Systems for their help. Patrick Turrieta was great to work with, was very knowledgeable and explained everything well. If you are in need of your concrete lifted, repaired, and warrantied, then Patrick is the guy to ask for and no one else will do. Todd and his crew that did the work were very easy to work with, on time, good clean up and it looks great. We highly recommend them.

Kevin Estes came to thoroughly inspect our house and came up with a service plan to address a couple areas of concern. I feel so much better knowing we will be preventing future foundation shifts. I learnt a lot and he showed us the existing issues and what caused them, patiently answered all our questions, and he was very professional and courteous. I am so glad we had them come out for a free quote and are moving forward with the recommendations using a payment plan!

I have never given a review before, but after hiring Foundation Recovery Systems to rise my garage floor I was highly motivated to do so.The process started with Travis who came out to look at my garage floor and give me an assessment and quote. Travis is very friendly, professional, and educated me on my different options to fix my problem. After discussing my options with Travis I decided to purchase a poly-lift for my garage floor. Foundation Recovery's bid came in the middle of the 3 bids that I received, but I chose them because their warranty far exceeded the other 2 contractors, 5 years vs 2 years. But I also chose them because of Travis, just like working with him.On Dec 1st, Jeremiah and Jake came out to do the lift. They showed up on time and where also very friendly and professional. We discussed a few of my concerns and then they got to work. Took them about 3 hours to complete the work and afterwards they informed me of 2 other issues to keep an eye on, no footings under my garage posts and a foundation wall that may be moving. They also explained to me how to monitor both situations.Last thing, when Travis gave me the bid, he explained that the bid was good no matter how much material use. The other 2 contractors both stated that there would be additional fees if they exceed the amount of poly they estimated. I am so glad the I went with Foundation Recovery Systems, because Jeremiah & Jake reported to me when they finished that they used a lot more poly then they anticipated.Needless to say, if I ever need any sort of foundation work in the future I will be calling Foundation Recovery Systems. They not only met my expectations, they exceeded them. Thank you, guys!

We had the pleasure of meeting with Chris for initial consultation. We cannot say enough about how great the experience was! He was communicative the day of the appointment, prompt, knowledgeable, and was straightforward about what issues he saw right off the bat as well as what kind of price point we could expect. We were given multiple options and there was never any pressure to make a decision. On top of that, there was never a moment where it felt like we were being upsold or given an inflated price. He took the time to go over what the process for the work would look like and what we could expect after. I would work with Chris again in an instant and can’t recommend him enough. Foundation repair can feel like a scary concept but we felt we were in good hands the entire experience.

How We Encapsulate Your Crawl Space

Securing a safe and dry crawl space is a detailed process. Each step in these solutions and installations is key to transforming your crawl space into an area that’s dry, clean, and contributes to your home’s energy efficiency. 

Control Ground Water Seepage

CrawlDrain being installed in crawl space
What We Do

The ground around and under your house is full of water. Rain and snow saturate the soil, seep into your crawl space, and evaporates, filling the crawl space with moisture and humidity. It’s the perfect environment for mold and wood rot to eat away at the structure of your home. The first thing we do to stop this from happening is to add drainage in your crawl space to cycle out the water trying to get in.

What We Use

Change the Environment

What We Do

The next step we take to protect your crawl space from moisture is to seal it with an industrial grade vapor barrier. This will change the environment in your crawl space and keep it controlled. It will keep all the moisture trying to destroy your home from getting in through open crawl space vents, gaps in the foundation wall, and any other opening. All of these need to be encapsulated. With encapsulation from Foundation Recovery Systems, a healthier, more stable home is finally possible.

What We Use

Properly Insulate the Home

What We Do

Imagine you left your front door open all winter long. That’s what it’s like without a properly insulated crawl space. With your crawl space and subfloor exposed to the elements, your floor will get cold, and then you’ll see your energy bills climb as your heating overworks itself. That’s why Foundation Recovery Systems installs insulation blocks that resists moisture and mold, keep your home warm, and your energy bills low.
